How many types of genetic disorder diseases that you recognize? Down syndrome is one of the most common ones. Do you know that there are some people in this world who are suffering from rare genetic disorder illness? Prader-Willi syndrome is one of them.

A Brief Background Knowledge about Prader-Willi syndrome
You read it as /ˈprɑːdər ˈvɪli/. Its abbreviation is P.W.S. This is a rare genetic disorder in which seven genes (or some subset thereof) on chromosome 15 (q 11-13) are deleted or unexpressed (chromosome 15q partial deletion) on the paternal chromosome. The name of this disorder is named after its discoverers, Andrea Prader (1919 – 2001) and Heinrich Willi (1900 - 1971). The characteristics of PWS is “low muscle tone, short stature, incomplete sexual development, cognitive disabilities, problem behaviours, and a chronic feeling of hunger that can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity”. The incidence of PWS is between 1 in 25, 000 and 1 in 10, 000 live births.

This is another type of genetic disorder problem which is slightly more common compared to the P.W.S. However, this is again a sad and unwanted disorder in every victim.
This is a blog written by a home school dad who has a son born suffering from P.W.S. His son’s name is A-man. The purpose of A-man’s father setting up this blog is to evoke people’s attention on the special needs awareness on P.W.S. and home schooling ideas. His blog content is made up of the learning about disabilities (autism and P.W.S.), emotional support and special needs ideas. His target readers are not specific to only parents and victims of these disorders but also the community who share similar concern and love to these people.

His blog has achieved a remarkable result of having 20, 000 visits last month. I am writing this post to give him a helping hand, hoping to increase more traffic to his blog so that more people will be aware of these unfortunate disorders that are inevitable.

This amazing father of A-man writes good articles regularly with interesting topics. His articles are motivating and inspirational. They are of great strength and support for parents who feel lost when they discover their children having such diseases. All his articles are free to read and they are really very helpful. They are relatively short and not too difficult to read and just nice for anybody to understand easily. He also provides tips on what to take note just in case some parents may not be familiar yet with the P.W.S. Not only that, you can also find some interesting simple yet healthy recipes and short stories to read.

Overall, this is a blog well recommended for people who are seeking for help with P.W.S. and Autism and also for people who want to know more from real-experience teller.
